Removing mobo software after mobo brand swap?

I replaced a Gigabyte motherboard with an Asus motherboard recently in my new build. I had installed some Gigabyte stuff like Smart6 etc and didn't uninstall it before swapping the boards.

Doing some disk cleaning up I noticed some of this stuff still sitting around in my Program Files folders. When I try to uninstall I get error messages like "DMI port not found".

Does anyone have a suggestion on how to remove the Gigabyte software? It's not a huge deal and doesn't seem to be doing anything (no services I think) but it bugs me.

Oh, the OS is Win7..

  1. If you're familiar with Regedit, it's relatively easy to get rid of extra stuff. Once the registry is clean, delete the folder(s). Just be careful and make sure you have a good backup before proceeding.
  2. There are tons of Gigabyte items in the registry in various places include HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT, LOCAL_MACHINE, CURRENT_USER... Some of it is obviously part of the mobo Gigabyte stuff I installed but some isn't so obvious.

    Hmm... I'll have to consider how much this is really bugging me.
